Lessons Learned From Chadwick…

If PERSEVERANCE was a person it would be the late great Chadwick Boseman. He was the exact definition of  perseverance which is the ability to keep doing something in spite of obstacles. Therefore, people who persevere show steadfastness in doing something despite how hard it may be. 

Although I did not personally know Chadwick, I knew that he was an outstanding actor who loved his career. He persevered through his health challenges and produced great movies that all of us have the pleasure to see.  I’m sure being in the public eye, playing iconic characters on screen, and having health challenges could not have been easy but since he loved his career I’m sure he would say it was worth it!

His legacy will live on forever because he has made such an impact in our world. The top 3 essential career related things I learned from him are as follows:

1. LOVE what you do in your profession so you can be happy on a regular basis.

2. Whatever you do in your profession, do it with grace and excellence

3.  Despite what obstacles you may face in your profession, persevere through them because you are  VICTORIOUS and were made to WIN!!!


I want to encourage you to apply what I learned from him in your profession! Additionally, stay focus on the good and the positive things as you journey through your career.  Focusing on the negative just causes stress and brings your happiness levels all the way down. I say this time and time again so I’ll say it again, life is too short to be unhappy within your career and do nothing about it. So will YOU do something about it???

A ‘NO’ Does Not Stop The Show!

unnamed (10)
Have you ever received a NO throughout your career journey????? I certainly have but trust me it is not the end of the world!
.
No doesn’t mean never it simply means NEXT OPPORTUNITY…closed doors in your career means God blocked it because He has something better for you elsewhere…something God sized…something much greater than you could even think, dream or imagine. Ephesian 3:20 says it best, ‘Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us.’
.
Trust me I know all too well what a NO sounds like and feels like!!! BUT it was in that season of my life (the career waiting season) I surrendered my career path to God, developed strategies to create a résumé that spoke to my brand, developed strategies to ACE interviews and build an irresistible YOU Brand. I eventually reached my version of career prosperity but I didn’t do it on my own strength, instead I allowed God to direct my path and I asked God to allow me to encounter whoever I needed to in order for me to truly excel to the next level within my career journey. I encourage you to do the same by asking God to direct your path on your career journey.  Remember the facts of your career circumstances are never to hard for God to solve so remove the anxious feeling you may have in this season and activate your faith and press on!!!
